Summary:
American life expectancy is declining; birth rates are dropping. Nearly half of us think the other political party isn't just wrong; they're evil. What's causing the despair? Sasse argues that our crisis isn't about politics: We're lonely. Traditional tribes of place are evaporating, and we rally against common enemies so we can feel part of a team. And the digital revolution is throwing gas on the fire. We must rediscover real places and human-to-human relationships to heal our lonely souls. -- adapted from jacket
